Her words...
"I have a Masters degree in Human Nutrition, which I gained in 1997, following my bachelor degree studies in Sport and Exercise Science. Prior to that (in my early 20’s) I taught many forms of exercise classes, and worked as a Personal Trainer. This stood alongside my own training & competing in running events and triathlon. Since focusing primarily on Nutrition, human health and food education, I am lucky and extremely grateful to have worked in a wide & rather diverse variety of settings, both with the general public, businesses & corporations, athletes & sports teams, but always aiming to do one thing… improve people’s knowledge & understanding of food & nutrition, & “healthy living”, and what that means to them. It is vital that each individual knows how he or she can use newfound knowledge to get where they want to go! After all, knowledge is not true knowledge until we have lived it! I’ve had wonderful learning opportunities and as such, have gained a wealth of experience as a practising Nutritionist, as well as developing my skills as a writer, and budding entrepreneur! My work is a true passion for me – simply because it enables me to do what I love doing… interacting with a variety of people, to teach and educate in exciting and inspiring ways, and of course to support people too, on their own personal journeys to better health, sustained weight loss, improved fitness, improved athletic performance, personal growth or simply more happiness and contentment in their lives. I always feel very privileged and grateful to be in such a position, to make a real and lasting difference to people’s lives. Naturally, I have a passionate interest and fascination with the subject of nutrition (relating to both ancient traditions, as well as modern science and modern living) but more specifically in the fact that what we eat (and how we live our lives) truly does affect our entire physical, mental, emotional AND spiritual health and well-being.

I bring to all aspects of my work, my growing knowledge and experience from my never-ending studies in Nutrition, health and well-being, and my own sporting and fitness background, as well my interest (and study) in Ayurvedic Medicine, cooking and cuisine.

Please contact me if you would like to colaborate with me, or want me to help you, and support you (or your clients) toward better health, fitness and success".
